The current 2.4-devel tree never assigns any memory to the ISA DMA zone,
irrespective of the setting of ISA_DMA_THRESHOLD. As I'm currently
trying to get a floppy working on a platform with 24-bit ISA DMA in its
Southbridge, this looks like a problem.

How do people feel about the attached patch? This should only change
behavior for platforms which set ISA_DMA_THRESHOLD to a value other than
0 or (-1)L.
